From Hollywood Rag:
Nicki Minaj demanded the grass outside her dressing room at T in the Park be cut shorter.
The ‘Starships’ hitmaker refused to walk around her private area at the Scottish music festival last weekend because the lawn had not been trimmed sufficiently and insisted someone tackle the greenery before she would step outside.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Nicki went mad about the grass around her area, saying it was far too long for her to walk on.
“She threw a complete strop, pouting and pointing and asking someone to get a lawnmower to sort it out.”
Nicki – who is also said to have made the same demand at the BBC Radio 1 Hackney Weekend festival in London last month – was later blasted on twitter by a fellow performer at the annual music event, which took place in Balado Park, Kinross.
Singer Frank Turner tweeted: “You can (I suppose) be a d**k to your own crew, you’re paying them. But everyone else? Not to mention the people out front. Ugh.
“To clarify: Nicki Minaj has been a selfish s***head to all the hard-working crew backstage at T. Pathetic. F**k off.”
The rapper also angered the crowd as when she eventually made it onto the stage 50 minutes late; her 30-minute performance was booed by fans after she appeared to be miming for much of it.
One fan said: “We were buzzing for the gig and it turned out to be a total joke. Disaster doesn’t even describe it.”
It’s always been fascinating to me to think about how people get this way. Like, Nicki Minaj actually thought that forcing someone to mow the grass outside of her dressing room because it was too long to walk on would be an acceptable thing to do. How is that possible? How do you have a dream job where you get to do what you’ve always wanted to do and get paid insane amounts of money for doing it and still act that way? I would imagine that it would be the opposite, that you’d just be stoked on your whole life every single day, but it seems like that’s rarely the case. And of course I get having bad days, but during the worst day possible, I can’t imagine being this rude to another human being.
What I’m saying is that for the amount of money Nicki gets paid, she can suffer through some tall grass, quit your bitchin’, walk it off, etc., etc.
